Golden Frog, Panama

Last week was good for introduction to the Central America - i have received my 1st (and for the next few years only, op. pis.) written & stamped card from Panama, thanks to Christina xD
As i love native animals, this card showing Panamian Golden Frog was a wonderful surprise. But i was sorry to read that this species is critically endangered, due to the chytrid fungus, habitat loss, pollution and collection for illegal pet trade (sometimes i feel like we humans really dont deserve to live on this magnificent planet). Christina also wrote about the myth that when this frog dies, it turns into gold and brings good luck to those who see it :)
Complete with a wonderful stamp showing Panama City.
